    Default What the world needs now?

    What do you think the world needs now? In general but also what are your views about optimism and pessimism with respect to this question? Does the world need more pessimism or optimism now?

    the word needs a world-centric structure, that allows decisions to be 'deployed' simultaneously.

    that's because no country or agenda has the power to undo the habits that destroy everything, because any country or agenda is locked into relationships of dependency in such a way, that it would 'remove' itself, by stepping out of line.

    if you want your democratic voice to have a meaning, in regard to the ultimate issue of our wellbeing, as opposed to minor local issues, i would suggest you vote for the concept of simultaneous policies.

    however people have prejudices about any structure, that integrates the whole, because they can't understand the difference between hierarchy and holarchy. so, for people to support such a world-centric structure, there needs to be a shift in this understanding. unfortunately people would rather risk our survival, than give up on their prejudices about novel suggestions, misperceiving them as something old, seeking security in cynicism or scepticism. so, what is needed more than anything is a sense of humility. look, your known ways have been tried, they are a part of the world as it is, and they are not transforming the world. known ways are players of the old polarity and the polarity is doomed. known ways won't sort things out. so give it up. become unknowing. think fresh, about what is needed. learn about integration. let's dedicate our souls or hearts to world-centricity.

    ...is love, sweet love.

    It needs more focus on holistic education that includes critical thinking skills as well as inter/intra-personal understanding. The Dalai Lama is making some interesting efforts in this direction.

    Schneizel's Damocles, to suspend the carnage that is the pursuit of personal interest for as long as it takes to implement a system that channels its natural drives to achieve worthwhile ends, and to keep the system intact afterwards.

    More fucking.

    More free love and sex and sowing wild oats and stuff, more hippies, more group sex and more fun. You only live once.

    *I type this thinking of one of my favourite pornos but, my point remains, the hippies got it right and contraception saves lifes and always get STD tested if you're actively fucking.

    A benevolent despot.

    Pessimism and optimism are both unbalanced approaches. We need realism. We need to identify and focus on basic common goals, and set aside the petty, superficial conflicts that stand in the way of that. The realism is necessary in part to expose these conflicts as indeed petty and counterproductive.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
